Jerry asked in Arts & HumanitiesHistory · 10 years ago

Who are the most influential people of the renaissance?

I need to know the top 10 for a school project or be referred to an already answered question that contains at least a few names.

    Leonardo da Vinci (he's boss!)

    Michelangelo

    Raphael

    Niccolo Machiavelli

    Lorenzo il Magnifico (or Lorenzo Medici)

    Savonrola

    Dante Allegeri

    The Borgias (well, I can't leave out the notorious Papal Crime Family, now can I?)

    William Shakespeare

    Caterina Sforza (she beheaded people and was allies with the Medici, what can you not love?)

    EDIT: Johann Gutenberg

    That's Gutenberg...

    But I'd say da Vinci was the most important one.
